Report: Obama to Meet PM Before and After Abbas

President Barack Obama of the United States will devote no small amount of time during this week's visit to Israel to bring about a renewal in talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), according to a Monday-morning report by Ma'ariv/nrg. Obama will meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a second time, after his Thursday meeting in Ramallah with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The second Obama-Netanyahu meeting is also expected to take place on Thursday, before the American president's speech to students at the Binyanei Ha'uma International Convention Center in Jerusalem. There has been no official announcement about the meeting from either the Prime Minister's Office or the White House.
